published 13/02/2005

ProSome cool songs that are ear pleasing.

ConsSome tracks drag on.Lasts 37mins.

Joe Satriani – SURFING WITH THE ALIEN: Released 1987, (so its 17years old! Almost as old as me!) I have listened to this album so many time I have lost count, not only has it been playing the role of most music in entertaining us, but for me being a guitarist this has served as inspiration as...

“Incredible guitarist!”

published 01/08/2000

ProIncredible guitarist

ConsShort album

Surfing With the Alien is an album of interesting and technically blinding songs. But then an album full of instrumentals has to be. The style varies from blues (The incredible Satch Boogie) to rock (Surfing With the Alien) to ambient (Always with me, always with you). This album will be of...
